Could Apple Finally Make a Move into the EHR World?

By Ryan Kelly –

We’ve talked about it for years, but not speculation may be reality as Apple, Inc. is looking to release a new generation iPhone in the near future.  A recent article by Modern Healthcare goes slightly beyond speculation and actually predicts that the new phone will take healthcare integration to the next level with interoperability with hospitals and clinics for patient records.

This merger of self reported data along with HIPAA-compliant health data exchange would be revolutionary for interoperability, and it may finally take us where we all thought we could go in the healthcare industry.

Or, maybe it’s just hype.  We may find out soon when Apple unveils its latest round of products as tomorrow’s expo.
